100-Item and 60-Item Versions
Provided here are the 100-item and the 60-item versions of the HEXACO-PI-R in several languages. Both of these versions are available in self-report and observer report forms. You can download any of these forms free of charge, but only for the purpose of non-profit academic research. Please contact the authors if you would like to use the inventory for non-academic purposes.
We recommend the 100-item versions for use in most research studies, but the 60-item version is suitable when time is very short. (In undergraduate student samples, nearly all respondents will complete the 100-item version in 20 minutes, or the 60-item version in 12 minutes. Respondents of other samples may require more time.) The items of the 60-item version are a subset of the items of the 100-item version. However, the items of the 60-item version are not simply the first 60 items of the 100-item version. The item numbers are not the same across the two versions.
There is also a 200-item version of the HEXACO-PI-R that is recommended when longer measures of the facet-level variables (see scoring keys) are required in order to achieve higher internal-consistency reliability. Please contact the authors if this form is required.
